STB 2.0 - NEXT GENERATION CONNECTED HOME ENTERTAINMENT STRATEGIES
As the once isolated worlds of communications, broadcast media and broadband entertainment converge, a paradigm shift in connected home entertainment is under way. At the center of this perfect storm is the set-top box. Emerging intelligent set-top boxes are becoming the most crucial link bridging these worlds, enabling a next generation of connected home entertainment.
Consumers are increasingly embracing a broader trend toward a digital lifestyle and have a desire for digital content when they want, where they want, in the pace they want and at the time they want it. While the vast majority of set-top boxes remain relatively dumb devices, operators are beginning to explore ways to exploit the synergies between online and broadcast media to create highly differentiated services. Enabling this is going to require a new generation of intelligent set-top boxes with much more sophisticated features and functions.
Set Top Box 2.0 is the only conference dedicated to exploring the emerging technology ecosystem surrounding the next generation of set-top boxes. The event also examines a host of emerging services and business models which will be enabled.
As communications, broadcast media and broadband entertainment converge, there are exciting questions to be answered. Set Top Box 2.0 is the place where you can hone your competitive edge and develop winning platform, product and service strategies for the next generation of connected home entertainment.
